Adolescence and Emerging Adulthood 5th Edition by Jeffrey Arnett
(NOT paper & print book, but an eBook in PDF Format!)
Helps students understand how culture impacts development in adolescence and emerging adulthood.
Grounded in a global cultural perspective (within and outside of the US), this text enriches the discussion with historical context and an interdisciplinary approach, including studies from fields such as anthropology and sociology, in addition to the compelling psychological research on adolescent development. This book also takes into account the period of âemerging adulthoodâ (ages 18-25), a term coined by the author, and an area of study for which Arnett is a leading expert.
Arnett continues the fifth edition with new and updated studies, both U.S. and international. With Pearsonâs MyDevelopmentLab Video Series and Powerpoints embedded with video, students can experience a true cross-cultural experience.
